ARDMORE, Okla. - The countdown to Christmas is on in Ardmore. It kicked off Tuesday night with the annual tree lighting. Hundreds of people turned out to take part in the festivities leading up to the lighting at around 6:30 p.m.
The event was sponsored by the Goddard Center and the Main Street Authority. KXII-TV’s own Lisanne Anderson was there, counting down for the officials who flipped the switch.
The parade went down from the park to the depot downtown. East Ironworks won a float category, as did the Ardmore High School Band.
The Toys for Tots Southern Oklahoma Childrens' parade will roll through downtown Ardmore around 11 a.m. this Saturday.
